How Old Is TOO Old For Spring Break?

23? 24? 25? At what age does it get inappropriate to still go on Spring Break?  If you ask this 24-year-old, NEVER!  Now, first things first: I actually never went on Spring Break during college.  I was too busy asking for extra hours at my part-time job at Wegmans in order to pay for books for the following semester.  Or I was using the week to gain extra experience at my college internships. Or I simply didn't have the necessary funding to go.
Finally, at age 24, I can say that I - along with 10 other brave men - am embarking on a week of sand, sun and clubs, Mexican style.  At the spur of the moment on Monday, after a bit of discussion, we booked flights and hotel accommodations for Cancun, Mexico.

Some of the Spring Break crew have been there before, others have not, and some like myself haven't been on a plane since age 10, so this should be interesting.
What am I most looking forward to, you ask?
Relaxation is what first comes to mind.  Exploring a different area comes second.  While I like seeing sights in America, there's something about the experience of traveling to a different country that excites me.  Not to mention it never rains there and clubs, I hear, stay open 'til about 4 a.m.  Let's hope I stay awake that long!
For those who don't know, Cancun is a part of Mexico nestled next to the Caribbean Sea that was specifically created for tourism, and I'm told has all the makings of a fun-filled tropical vacation.  It's a favorite spot among younger generations because it's relatively cheap to get there from the United States - a major plus for twenty somethings on a budget.
Heck, the passport alone costs more than $100.  I'll consider that my latest donation to the United States Government.
I'll have more to share as the date gets closer, but for now, it's nice having something to look forward to during these dreary January days.
